One of the most important things that entrepreneurship provides is employment. The unemployment rate has been at historic levels but recently there has been job growth. We feel that a big part of that job growth is due to the rate of starting small businesses. Entrepreneurs create fresh small and large-scale employment opportunities; as the business grows so do the number of employees. Entrepreneurs significantly reduce the problem of unemployment.
Entrepreneurs have changed the way we live, the way we do things. Their innovations have made life easier and increased the standard of living. Most entrepreneurs start their businesses because they wanted to do something they love, or were inspired by an idea they truly believe in. The positive effects of working in an environment that’s important to you paves the way for innovations and advances in technology that increase economic development for our country. And on a much larger scale, when production of these good spreads worldwide, they make us competitors in the global economy.
